granite roller

Farm recycling

We have had a stone mantel aging under the woodland canopy for the last year to mellow the glaring whiteness of the newly carved granite. Anyone who farmed in the 1960’s or before would fondly remember granite rollers that were used each spring in the fields preparing the grass for cutting later in the year. One broken roller has been recycled to become part of our fireplace surround. We had it cut in half and set on small granite blocks holding up our nicely mellowed mantel piece. Sorted.
